Emily is nms, it sounds a bit 'girlie' and wishy-washy to me. I used to go to school with an Emily who was a real horror so perhaps that turned me against it.....! Emily can't be the only name in the world he likes and it's important you're both happy with the name you choose.

I like Emily but I think it really needs to be something you are comfortable with. Maybe keep looking for alternatives that would make both of you happy.

I agree about the initials thing - GAG would be bad.

I don't like Emily... not that its a bad name, its just not my style. Its also really common right now, especially with the "Emma" craze!

Lance & Grant are cute boy names. I don't think the initials GAG are going to cause a problem, I've never heard anyone (that I know) get made fun of because of their initials. My daughter's initials are BAM.

Good Luck, hopefully you guys can agree on something!

it's not a bad name, just kinda common. How about you come up with a name that Emily can be used as the nickname for, or use it as the mn?

I really dislike the name Emily, its just not my style at all. One thing though, you have to truly like the name you agree on with your husband or you will regret it.

I like Marissa May and Grant Patrick.

What about Marissa Emily? Do you think he'd compromise on that? I think that's a very pretty name

so we know that we have along time before we really need to decide, but my hubby is stuck on the name Emily if its a girl...frankly its not a bad name but im not loving it. I like longer names, could be because i come from a family w/ 4 kids and we all have long names, Victoria, Elizabeth, Christopher, Katherine... I was thinking Angelina Marie or Marissa May (maybe im stuck on M's). He says that he has always known that he would have a daughter named emily. We did agree on boys names, Lance Patrick or Grant Agostino (agostino is a family name)...the only problem with the later is his intials would be GAG...i never want my children to have initials that spell something they could be made fun of for. So what do you guys think of the names? Do you all love Emily too?[/b]
I like the name Emily. A lot of other people like Emily too, otherwise it would not be so popular these days. But I think that your dh needs to compromise with a name that you like too, or you'll always regret that you don't like your daughter's name.

What about calling her a double-name like: Emily Elizabeth, or Emily Anne?

Definitely agree with you that you should not use the initials GAG. That would be bad!
